THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26, TO SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2023 – 7:30 P.M.
Jonathan Larson’s RENT follows a year in the lives of young artists seeking connections, navigating political instability, mourning losses, and facing the tolls of an emerging deadly virus.
Staging the Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning musical RENT at the Virginia Theatre provides an opportunity to gather as we continue our own searches for connections, rebuild communities, and celebrate the lives that have touched us.
Based on Puccini’s La Bohéme, RENT lets us look back in order to move forward.
